The Topaz Museum has collected an impressive number of artifacts from the camp, including 87 pieces of art painted at the Topaz Art School, furniture also made at camp, jewelry, and other personal belongings.
A restored recreation hall gives visitors the authentic experience of what it was like to live in Topaz, the shoddy materials used to make the barracks, how people were subject to the weather, and the incessant dust and dirt that pervaded the living quarters. Mattresses stamped “WRA” show the exact type of bedding and cots issued to each internee.
Most of the artifacts are in storage until the Topaz Museum is built. A small display and the restored recreation hall can be seen by appointment.
The Topaz Museum Board intends to build a museum on Main Street in Delta, which will exhibit artifacts and interpret the history of Topaz, establish an archive, and provide a permanent repository of the historic items associated with Topaz.
